Birding around Old Hickory and Percy Priest lakes this weekend there were 23+ 
Rusty Blackbirds near Old Hickory Dam (12/5/2010) hanging around with 
Blackbirds and a pair of Purple Finches at Long Hunter SP (12/4/2010).  One of 
the blackbirds had white wing patches, which made me run for my scope, but it 
was a female Red-winged with a couple of white secondary wing feather.  There 
were about 100 Common Loons on Old Hickory, but duck numbers seemed low on both
